Session: The New Face of Education
The educational revolution has been long time coming. And it is very clear that the one size fits all boxed thinking does not really work. The only way you can truly reimagine education is if you redefine the parameters of assessment.
Everyone wants out of the box thinking but even that statement usually gives free reign within an already parameterized and perimeterized box - it is literally oxymoronic!
There are multiple angles in which education can be reimagined but I will highlight three key aspects from my experience that can lead to holistic development.
Dr. Ashie Bhandiwad is an entrepreneur, scientist, and educator. She is a strong advocate for food based STEM education for young children. Ashie founded StemChef on this principle to keep STEM interest kindled and alive in children to inspire the next generation. Happily she also tackles the female “pipeline” issue that is blamed for under-represented female gender in STEM careers. Prior to that she had dedicated a decade of her life working on renewable energy to combat climate change. Her papers have been published in top scientific journals. Now Ashie is out to inspire the teeny tots to take on global issues of their generation. Ashie holds a PhD in Engineering from Dartmouth College.
